Dr. Burcu Saner Okan, one of SUNUM’s researchers, received the best poster award among 330 project posters in Euronanoforum 2013 conference which was Europe's biggest nanotechnology event held from 18th- 20th of June 2013 in Dublin, Ireland. This event is funded by the European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation and its Industrial Technologies programme.
Her project poster is entitled as “Multi-walled nanofiber reinforced self-healing, smart composite material production via triaxial electrospinning technique” supported by Tubitak and being part in one of the COST action programmes. Dr. Burcu Saner Okan is the project manager, and Prof. Dr. Yusuf Menceloğlu and Assoc. Prof. Mehmet Yıldız are advisors in this project. The main aim of this project is the fabrication of self-healing, multi-walled nanofibers to be used in load bearing applications and bringing the innovation in composite technology.
